Louis Jadot 2002 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  1. $140
This is one of the great Burgundies of 2002. It shows the power of the year, with huge black fruits and dense tannins. But it also shows the charm, with ripeness that promises a precocious development as well as long aging.  — R.V.  (9/1/2004)

Louis Jadot 2005 Clos Saint-Jacques Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $125
Beautiful, aromatic wine, with raspberry fruit floating above the spice and toast. This is shot through with acidity and some dense tannins, but above all it is the piercing fruit that dominates. One of Jadot’s signature wines, it is wonderful, with considerable aging potential.  — R.V.  (8/1/2008)

Roche de Bellene 2010 Champeaux Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  1. $92
New wood aromas dominate this powerful wine, which shows how much time it needs to age. It also has concentrated, juicy black-cherry and plum flavors and lovely acidity. This wine is made from fruit sourced from a two-acre parcel in the Champeaux premier cru.  — R.V.  (4/1/2013)

Domaine Bruno Clair 2010 Clos Saint-Jacques Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  • Best Buy
Made from fruit sourced from one of the finest premier crus in Gevrey-Chambertin, this is a closed wine initially. Then its rich black-fruit flavors explode, yet the wine still retains its serious, tannic character. The structure promises that this complex bottling will age well.  — R.V.  (4/1/2013)

With entrancing smoky aromas, this is a ripe, intense and powerful wine. The tannins are dry, contrasting with the black fruit-juice flavors, black chocolate and a dry final taste. For long-term aging.  — R.V.  (12/31/2010)

This is a very dense wine that is also rich. The firm, smoky structure is balanced by opulent ripe black fruits and juicy red berry flavors. The wine is solid and very dense, with the concentration that promises long-term aging. Drink from 2018.  — R.V.  (6/1/2014)
